DFDS aims to reach carbon neutrality by 2050
The Danish ferry and logistics company DFDS has established an ambitious climate plan which unveils its objective of becoming climate neutral by 2050.
The company plans to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from 2008 to 2030 by approximately 45 percent.
That corresponds, as stated, to an approximate 25-35 per cent reduction between 2019 and 2030.
Specifically, the strategy consists of two overall tracks covering short- and long-term tonnage adaptation, as well as a third track "getting the house in order" covering all other items, such as installations and terminal facilities.
The short-term tonnage adaptation plan consists of measures to be implemented over the next ten years, resulting in a decrease of approximately 45 per cent between 2008 and 2030. It is widely composed of minor technical upgrades, including solutions such as using the right coatings on vessel hulls and supporting decision systems.
“We need to learn a lot to be able to make the right strategic decisions. Projects and partnerships will help us learn and share knowledge and reach our goals. The long-term tonnage adaption plan focuses on our new generation of ships,” DFDS stated.
